LEARN TO THINK LIKE A CRIMINAL- PART 4
Need to supplement your income? Consider Shoplifting
5 years ago, California in it’s infinite wisdom passed Proposition 47. Prop 47 decriminalized property crime. Unless you steal merchandise valued in excess of $950 you will not be arrested, you will not be charged with a felony and you at worst be issued a citation. The odds are you won’t even be cited because it is highly unlikely the police will even respond. In fact some thieves having been seen using calculators in the stores to make sure they don’t go over $950.
Here’s a great example of how a criminal thinks. In a recent interview of a professional shoplifter here is an exact quote. “If I need money who’s going to get it for me? No one. They ain’t out here arresting people for shoplifting and everyone knows it. So why not if it gets me paid?
Pretty much sums up the mind of a criminal.
